The importance of good nutrition. This is something that most people overlook or don’t pay attention to.  However, health starts at the cellular level and the micronutrients you get from good nutrition are an essential part of healthy cells.

Any future plans?
I would like to put together a series of lectures to inform people of the community about health issues.  I also would like to get involved more in pain relief.
